I have a NSTableView: See how the text is slightly upwards, and not centered. I would like it centered. What would I do, I tried everything with IB.

Subclass the NSTextFieldCell.

It’s subclasses as ImageAndTextCell

Figured you didn’t write the code yourself. I would get a brand new NSTableView, add two table columns, make one an NSImageCell and the other a regular NSTextFieldCell and see if you can make it work. If you can’t, go back to basics, I think you need to relearn them.

This is just a guess but have you looked at the WHOLE image? Perhaps it has a shadow or other unseen pixels that are causing the whole cell to be larger than you would expect.

Why not use an NS(Mutable)AttributedString (since you can lower/raise the base line)? You can stick images in the attributed string too (don’t need an extra column) but maybe you knew that already.

Something like this…

{ // didn’t test the value here NSDictionary *defaultAttributes = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObject:[NSNumber numberWithFloat:-0.1] forKey:NSBaselineOffsetAttributeName]; //autoreleased mAttedString = [[NSMutableAttributedString alloc] initWithString:@”” attributes:defaultAttributes]; // kept around }

return mAttedString; // hand it off }
